The immensely talented Daniel Piker (www.pikerphoto.com, IG: @pikerphoto) is a Seattle, Washington, based photographer. An avid car enthusiast, mechanic, and stage rally co-driver, he loves all things automotive.
Daniel first picked up a DSLR during the Winter of 2015 and growing up in the Pacific Northwest, he developed a strong passion for the natural beauty of the area. He started off shooting landscapes and portraits, but it wasn’t long before he dipped his toes into the automotive world, combining both of his passions. You'll recognize Daniel's work from publications like Petrolicious, Super Street, 000 Magazine, Type 7, Stanceworks, and Bring a Trailer. Here's a little more about Daniel's car experience in his own words:
What’s your favorite car?
That's a hard one... if I could only pick one, I'm going to cheat here and say aircooled Porsches. They just have so much character compared to anything else, which makes them awesome subjects to photograph!
What’s your most treasured car experience?
As a co-driver in stage rally, it would have to be getting 3rd overall at Tour De Forest rally in 2018. It was one of the craziest rides we've had, especially since it was our rookie season. Oh and having to be bump started over the start line that same rally was quite the adventure too!
What’s your favorite shoot you’ve done?
It's not car related, but it was a photoshoot of a local painter in a coffee shop! My favorite part of photography is being able to document an experience, especially if it's of another artist!
What’s your favorite car photography experience?
This is another hard one... probably being able to photograph a Porsche 912 down in Palm Springs among all the modern artistic architecture! The contrast between the car and the buildings was such a fun challenge, I mean how can you get a better car/location combo!?
